    Hello,

    I have a iPhone 3G running 3.0 on T-mobile network and I have been doing some research for a long time now and I haven't been able to find anything on how to enable this feature. If anyone could help me I would appreciated. Thank you. :)

    I'm assuming you are in the US. So, tethering ability was never enabled on US based iPhones. Hacks exist to use iTunes to upload a hacked .ipcc (iPhone Carrier file) in order to allow tethering and MMS.

    There are other methods of coarse (SSH Tunnel, SOCKS Proxy) to tether.

    Well, since you are using T-Mobile, you will have to find the correct settings for your iPhone.

    I found this guide on how to do it. You might want to look over it. I am not sure it'll work since I don't have T-Mobile.

    Better than no internet at all.
